Cos X Studio Swine – New Spring Installation

New Spring is an interactive installation and multi-sensory experience in a 1930's disused cinema in Milan, a collaboration between Cos and Studio Swine. The installation presents ephemeral materials in a strange new context; delicate mist-filled ‘blossoms’ that disappear on contact with skin, but can be held by visitors wearing special gloves. Producing these blossoms is the installation’s bold centerpiece, a tree-like sculpture that references the ornate chandeliers of Italian palazzos and the architectural features of Milanese columns and arches.

“Inspired by the cherry blossoms of Japan
we wanted to create a special moment that brings
people together. A fleeting experience that
evokes fragility and changing of the seasons.”
Studio Swine
